Johnny was standing at the gates of Heaven. Johnny asked St. Peter if there was football in Heaven. St. Peter took Johnny's arm and off they went, flying through the sky. Looking down upon a football field, Johnny asked :"Who is that really old guy wearing blue and white, big thick glasses, and wearing floods?"

St. Peter said "That's God, he thinks he's Joe Paterno !"

See, there is football in Heaven.

Marriage is the only thing I know of that supposedly doesn't exist in heaven. (No, seriously.) Football's probably ok.

just out of curiosity, does it say somewhere that marriage isn't in heaven?

--I don't read the bible or follow any religion really closely, but that statement just peaked my curiosity is all :)

there had better be football in heaven though...otherwise it has no business being called heaven :silly:

Looking at the Context

Keeping in mind that the Lord has much more to tell us about life after death than He was able to reveal at the time of the New Testament, let us consider the question of whether there is marriage after death. There are many passages which bear on this question, but there is one verse which often seems to be used to the exclusion of others: "In the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage." (Matthew 22:30) Taken out of context, this passage does seem to say that there is no marriage after death. Very often, however, a careful examination of the context will completely change the meaning of a passage. To be sure that we get the correct meaning of the passage, let us look at the whole context carefully.

The same day the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to Him and asked Him, saying: "Teacher, Moses said that if a man dies, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife and raise up offspring for his brother. Now there were with us seven brothers. The first dies after he had married, and having no offspring, left his wife to his brother. Likewise the second also, and the third even to the seventh. And last of all the woman died also. Therefore, in the resurrection, whose wife of the seven will she be? For they all had her."

Jesus answered and said to them, "You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like the angels of God in heaven. But concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by God, saying, `I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living." And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at His teaching. (Matthew 22:23-33. See also Mark 12:18-27, Luke 20:27-40)

If you read further on the page, he explains what he means by "out of context" and provides and interpretation of the passage which may in fact support the existence of marriage in heaven after all. I'm not a theology expert, so I couldn't give you the official church position.
